earman098 - mindSpiral - Curiosa Positronica In April of 2009, Mike Metlay launched the latest of his mindSpiral collaborative projects. This version, the eighth incarnation so far, was a trio composed of David Herpich (better known as Emerald Adrift), Darrell Burgan (better known as Palancar), and of course Mike himself. The central purpose of this version of mindSpiral was to compose and rehearse music for a live performance taking place at the Fiske Planetarium in Boulder, Colorado, on April...

earman025 - Tange - CHON CHON = Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen, Nitrogen, the by-products of fire. So, what does this music signify? What's it all about? The answer's simple: nothing at all! This piece was composed purely to listen to while reading or in a bath (where the artist claims he spends an inordinate length of time). With this music playing it is like having a long soak beside a warm open fire, or like curling up with a good book in a semi-darkened room with just a puddle of light...

This piece, intended simply as a test run for a set of performances coming up later that month, quickly turned into something more -- as it progressed well past its initial time frame and swelled to nearly an hour of nonstop music, it defined the edges and corners of Metlay's musical...
